As part of Carlos Slim's Foundation, Soumaya Museum opened its doors in 1994. It is a cultural institution that has the main goal of collecting, researching, preserving, spreading and exhibiting the artistic heritage of Mexico and Europe. It aims at promoting cultural knowledge through many activities: permanent and temporary exhibitions, catalogues and publications, conferences, film festivals, among others.
This museum is placed in a former property of Hernan Cortez, the Spanish conqueror of Mexico.
